"All the world's a stage...
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts..."

- Jaques, Act 2 Scene 7, As You Like It 


Join the teen cast of this iconic Shakespearean comedy production!

Follow our heroine, Rosalind, as she and her cousin, Celia, run away from the court of her usurping uncle in search of love and happiness in the Forest of Arden. To escape notice, Rosalind dresses like a boy, only to discover her true love, Orlando, has also fled into the Forest. In this mixed-up world, anything can happen—and in the end, love does indeed conquer all...

This production has it all: comedy, stage fighting (in which performers will all receive training), and Shakespeare's unique characters and dazzling language...

This production course is for Semester 1 2024 and will end in a theatre production at Belconnen Theatre on SATURDAY NIGHT, 29TH JUNE 2024.

This production is suitable for teenagers ages 13-18 with strong performing arts experience.

For practicality, the script will be abridged (shortened) for this production, retaining all of Shakespeare's most iconic passages.

TUTORING TEAM: This semester, we are delighted to welcome back Lily Welling to the tutoring team! Lily is excited to share her knowledge of As You Like It from her recent studies at LAMDA in London.
